Month: June 2013

Five for Friday

Wow – it’s been a while since my last new post, and even longer since my last Five for Friday, but as they say I guess life just got in the way. 😉 It’s officially the start of summer today (yay!) and there are many things I’m looking forward to this week.

Vanderbilt Museum

We’re heading out to Long Island next week to visit my parents as well as the Vanderbilt Museum. As I said in my last post, I haven’t been there since I was 8 and am really looking forward to visiting again.


Farmer’s Market

We plan on visiting a new local farmer’s market that just opened near us. It’s in a shopping center so the plan is to take Lady M there early in the day, walk around and grab some lunch.


Baby Shower

My friend’s shower is this weekend and it should be fun to share in her day and catch up with old friends.


All American

This is a legendary burger stop on Long Island. People start lining up for lunch at 10:30 am and the crowds are always massive. I haven’t been able to enjoy this place in months so I can’t wait to treat myself to a burger, shake and maybe even a kinish!


Library Class
Lady M and I haven’t been to library class in a few weeks since they took a short vacation break. We’re ready to return and this week will be extra-special since The Husband will be able to come with us.


Hope you have a great week!


Summer’s Coming!

ImageHow is it already June? The time just keeps flying by, and there’s nothing I can do about it. So in light of it almost being summer, I’ve been thinking about all of the places we want to try and visit this year. We’re not doing a big vacation as in years past, so this summer will be filled with lots of fun day trips.

The Hamptons

It’s always nice to spend a pleasant afternoon shopping, strolling and eating in the Hamptons. The Husband has never been so I think this summer is the perfect opportunity to give him a taste of the Hamptons life.

ImageCold Spring

Cold Spring is a very charming and quaint town in New York’s Hudson Valley. I’ve only been once so I’m looking forward to going back and doing more of the same (see – Hamptons).  🙂

ImageThe Vanderbilt Museum

I haven’t been here since I was eight, but it’s a very cool museum, filled with artifacts from the famed Vanderbilt family. Situated on the Long Island Sound, you can see stunning views of Connecticut from the lawn. They also have a really nice planetarium.

ImageThe Bronx Zoo

I want to take Lady M this summer. Even though she’s still very young, I think she’ll get a kick out of visiting the Bronx Zoo.

ImageThe Cloisters

I think I’ve written about this many times already, but am determined to finally visit the Cloisters this summer, I swear!

ImageThe Husband and I are celebrating our third anniversary in August, so we’re planning on a fancy stay-cation filled with good food, spa treatments and pampering. We also have our eyes on a few concerts that we may try to see.

What’s on your summer wish list?
